Sometimes I think that KOTOR/SWTOR spoiled us in that regard. Very few SW games let you chose your gender (Jedi Academy and SWG being the only other ones off the top of my head)

Heck, most games in general don't give you any choice. They give you a character and you play the story as determined by the game.

Thinking about this I also wondered if there's more to the character being set (Gender) by the studio. The character customization has become almost something so frequent many would think its as regular as the disk space it occupies; it's just always expected in today's games. Thinking of "Star Wars" lore, stories and popular themes combined with "Fallen Orders" Story or Semi Story theme and more importantly the #2 character "Cere Junda", in the game, that woman seems to be Cal's *Wiser partner. I might think that at some point they may becomes a bit closer; that's the reason for the Dedicated Gender. Going a bit beyond that and also a frequent direction for Star Wars those two by the end may either "Be a Couple" or.....(This is Dark) she may be ..Killed most likely by the Inquisitor sister just before the finale of the Inquisitors defeat.
Just spit-balling ideas that fit known facts so far

I'm not particularly disappointed in the decision to have a set character (including species, gender, etc.) for the player character, as it makes sense with the "everything is canon" approach going on now. It was, for example, rather awkward the way stories had to contort to keep Revan's gender and appearance ambiguous before they finally bit the bullet and set them both within the G-Canon (and up to the end still dodge the question of what his name was before becoming "the Revanchist"). I didn't have a problem with Iden Versio, with all her defined characteristic, as the set main character of Battlefront II, either.

What does dampen my enthusiasm a bit, however, are the choices they made for what that set main character (and the principle antagonist) is going to be in Fallen Order. Cal Kestis and Second Sister just ... well, they just look like about the most generic hero and villain I've seen in a while. At least Second Sister seems to move in a halfway interesting manner, so it's possible the virtual performance of the character will make her stand out and come across as interesting. I'm afraid I haven't seen anything that gives me much real hope in terms of how interesting Cal is going to be.

SWG is the first one I played but it was not a single player game it was an MMO.

The first single player I played with the Knights of the Republic and the Sith Lord one as well. I like choosing my character's sex but that is just me.
